ART OF MINDFUL GARDENING: SOWING THE SEEDS OF Ark Redwood
Have you ever marvelled at the wonders of the compost heap, or at the new shoots sprouting forth in the Spring? In The Art of Mindful Gardening, Ark Redwood, head gardener at Chalice Wells, one of Britain's most sacred gardens, guides us through the changing seasons, drawing on years of gardening experience and Zen Buddhist practice, to act as a guide to the secret places of the garden that can be discovered through mindful practice and spiritual contemplation. He shows how meditation and mindfulness can bring an extra layer of consciousness and appreciation of the alchemical and magical happenings of the garden and the natural world. Enjoy stories of Ark's own gardening life and follow gentle exercises in breathing, observation and meditation to bring you in harmony with the plants while you work and to discover the garden of delights before you. This is the perfect gardener's gift and a real gem for the potting shed library.
